(Tea Party PAC) – Last weekend, a man by the name of Rayshard Brooks, while heavily intoxicated, passed out in his vehicle in the middle of a Wendy’s drive-thru.
When the police were called and responded, they administered a sobriety and breathalyzer test.
Police body cam footage released later shows that he was indeed intoxicated, meaning he had been operating his vehicle under the influence.
This may be news to some of today’s leftists, but driving a vehicle while under the influence is both incredibly dangerous and incredibly illegal.
It is also incredibly dangerous and incredibly illegal to steal a cop’s Taser, especially while the cop in question is attempting to arrest you.
But this is exactly what Brooks proceeded to do.
As he tried to run away with the Taser, he turned and fired it at the officers in pursuit.
This was when he was fatally shot.
A tragic situation, no one doubts it.
But one that Brooks brought upon himself with his reckless, criminal behavior.
Of course, in today’s political climate, this sparked a new wave of anti-racist protests in a nation still reeling from the death of George Floyd, which was, as opposed to Brooks’ death, completely unjustifiable, cold-blooded murder.
Now, in Brooks’ case, there’s been a rather interesting development, it appears.
Police in Atlanta have issued an arrest warrant for a woman with the same name as a woman who claimed to be Brooks’ girlfriend for burning down the Wendy’s where the incident took place.
Investigators with the Atlanta Fire Department said on Saturday that they had taken out an arrest warrant for a woman named Natalie White. The suspect allegedly helped perpetrate an act of arson at the Wendy’s at which Brooks was killed on the night of June 12.
Authorities say White is among several suspects investigators believe helped start the blaze.
Notably, in police body cam footage recorded prior to his death, Brooks identifies a Natalie White as his girlfriend multiple times.
It is not known if the two individuals are the same person. A call and an email to authorities in Atlanta on Saturday afternoon were not immediately returned.
